Solana has launched its version of the Android mobile device, part of the Solana Mobile Stack project, eliciting mixed reactions among the network community members.
Some users have welcomed the news with varied reactions, with some comparing the project to Apple and Ethereum, while others pointed to Solana’s latest network outages.
Twitter user Vinny Lingham lauded the move terming it as Web3’s iPhone moment, and thanked Solana-co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko for making it happen.
SOL tokens dipped at the beginning of June following network outages, totalling five in the year.
One Twitter user asked why Solana was trying to be a phone manufacturer when it should be striving to make its blockchain reliable.
Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson says that the phone may be hit by performance issues affecting the Solana blockchain. Another Twitter user, Nathanweb3, explained how Solana is growing to become a threat to Ethereum.
